Cancer represents a set of complex and varied disease. The close collaboration of a team of cancer specialists at the Rees Skillern Cancer Institute gives you the benefit of a thorough evaluation and a unified plan of care based on our team’s combined experience, and clinical and research expertise.
Your individual diagnosis may require surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy or a combination. Your total treatment plan may include nutrition therapy, plastic surgery or physical pulmonary rehabilitation. You may want help finding financial assistance or a support group that understands what you’re going through. Memorial’s holistic approach covers every need.
Regularly scheduled tumor conferences bring together the expertise of pathologists, oncologists, surgeons, radiologists, urologists, family practice specialists and other medical professionals to discuss all aspects of Memorial’s cancer cases.
In each case, a patient’s medical history, current condition and treatment goals are thoroughly reviewed to determine the optimal treatment for your unique needs. It is teamwork at its best.
